Keep That Smile Looking Stunning
Dentures are portable dental devices that fill in gaps left by missing teeth and help you regain your smile.
The replacement of missing teeth will improve your appearance and health if you have lost all of your teeth, whether due to trauma, tooth decay, gum disease, or any other cause.
This is because eating and speaking more comfortably with dentures than you could without teeth — activities that people frequently take for granted — is possible.
Types of Dentures
Partial dentures — constructed to close the space left by missing teeth. If you miss a few teeth, they can be taken out as needed to give you more confidence.
Complete dentures — are worn when the entire set of teeth in one jaw is missing. Typically, plastic is used to make these.
Your dentist might suggest overdentures if you have issues with your complete dentures.
Overdentures are removable prosthetics that sit over any remaining natural teeth or dental implants in your mouth.
If you still have some of your natural teeth, they will be modified to fit in the denture. On the jawbone, tiny implants are positioned if no teeth are left.
The overdenture is secured to either the natural teeth or the dental implants.
Your jaw’s soft tissues and bone are covered by dentures made of a plate, metal, or acrylic.
To look as natural as possible, ceramic or acrylic false teeth that match any natural teeth are attached to the plate.
The typical denture-making process requires several appointments spread out over a few weeks.
Following your dentist in Cabramatta has determined which kind of denture is best for you, follow these steps:
- Create impressions and moulds, and measure the jaw.
- Create plastic patterns, wax forms, or models that mimic the dentures’ position and shape. Prior to the final denture being cast, you will “try in” this model and have its colour, shape, and fit evaluated.
- Cast a final denture.
- As required, adjustments will be made.
Looking After Your Dentures
It is crucial to maintain your dentures properly to avoid these:
- Use a soft brush to clean the dentures at night to remove plaque gently. Removable dentures should be cleaned with a small washcloth over the sink while being brushed. If they fall, the washcloth serves as a cushion. Dentures frequently break when dropped on the floor, the counter, or the sink.
- To get rid of calculus or stop it from forming, they can also be soaked in water and white vinegar.
- Soak them overnight in a denture-cleaning solution. Wear them all day and brush them once more in the morning.

Can I normally eat with dentures?
It takes most patients a short while to get used to dentures because they need to learn how to use them properly.
After some time, you ought to be able to eat normally, but it might take longer to get used to eating tougher or stickier foods.
Are dentures the right option for me?
